100% White Whole Wheat Bread @ 100% Hydration Or More
First time trying 100% whole wheat bread and am not sure what needs to be done regarding crumb. Also, am not sure if it should have been baked more. Question? I baked mine in a pan for the first 20 minutes. Steam for 15 minutes, removed from pan and placed on Pizza Stone. Finished baking for a total of 35 minutes, plus left in oven for another 10 with door cracked open. Baked at 450F. Hydration was probably a bit over 100%.
Input as to how to make it lighter. Was afraid to just put on the stone as I was afraid it would flatten out too much. The pans were about 6 inches wide and about 12 inches long.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. First hubby said “too dense” when he looked at it, so I was going to dump it, but now he said save it. He tasted it and thought it was good. He is diabetic so wanted to try all whole wheat.
